Jim Poulsen:

Is there a way to filter the library to only show resources that have not been sent to kindle? Or can we automatically create a collection of not sent-to-kindle resources?

No, sorry.

Mark,

Thank you very much for making the time to create the video.  I haven't used the Logos Send to Kindle feature as much as others have, but it was very convenient and I'm sorry it's being removed.  Having seen your video however takes much of the bite out of the loss of this feature in Logos for occasional users.  It's nice to know there is still a way to get the job done.  Smile

Thanks for taking the time to make and explain this. Losing the send to kindle feature is a huge bummer, this is a great help.

Liam,

I was able to get A2 paper size to show up in Logos for Mac by installing an Epson SPro 3880 driver (even though I don't have that printer). I setup a dummy printer in OS X and then selected it in Logos.

How did you install the driver, exactly?  Thanks!

Search for the driver and download it from the Epson website. It will be a pkg file. After the driver is installed add a new printer through OS X and point it to any IP address and manually select the printer model as Epson spro 3880.

Thanks, Jeremy.  I didn't know to set it up with a fake IP.  Works perfectly.

ALSO, for those on Mac who are not getting the pages to update to the selected pages.  Try this:

1. Make sure the notch is in the "Use these sections" circle and something is checked.

2. In the Page Box, input your page criteria "i-9999" or whatever.

3. THEN, click on the notch next to the box.  It SHOULD update then. That's what worked for me.

Can't figure out how to edit my last post, but I tried my own method again and it didn't work. :(  So, if anyone else has a method on Mac, I'd be interested in hearing how to get all the pages selected.

There is a brief window which allows users to edit their post. This is an "anti-spam" measure... (one trick is to create a post that seemingly fits and edit it later to add spam).

If you enter the page numbers and then click back to one of the other selections and then back to the page number radio button it will sometimes update. However in order to get it to select the indexes in one book I had to use the section selection and just pick all of them including the indexes. It wouldn't get the indexes via page number.

Mark, first thanks for the video - great to know, you can bet I''l be using it ;-) I have one question though; one of the books I would like to convert and send to my Kindle is longer than 100npages (even after making the mods you suggest). I would assume that means I need to make two (or more) passes. Would the proper procedure be pass 1 - pass two (send to open Word doc (at cursor) - etc. until all is moved over? If yes, the preview images in the export window is so small I can't read it - so how would I know where to start the next cycle?

Yes.

In those circumstances I do the following:

  1. Send the first block to Word in the normal way.
  2. Look in Word to see how far you've got. Copy the last sentence to the clipboard.
  3. In the Logos resource, press Home then CTRL+F, and paste in the sentence to find that location in your Logos resource. It's Command+↑ then Command+F on a Mac.
  4. Temporarily turn on the page numbers visual filter to see where the current page begins, and remember the page number.
  5. Delete a small amount of text from your Word document so that your text in Word ends at the end of the previous Logos page. Make sure there's a space at the end of your Word document so the next text won't run into your existing text.
  6. Turn off the page number visual filter.
  7. Re-run the whole procedure, but this time type page XXX-9999, where XXX is the page number you remembered in step 4. Send it to the open Word document instead of a new Word document.

I was excited to see this video. However, it is not working for me. I'm following the steps carefully, but when I get to the step to Print/Export and enter "page i-9999" or "page 1-9999" Logos does not update the page numbers. The only way I'm able to select multiple pages is to click the boxes under "use these sections." That becomes tedious when there are many boxes to check for a resource. Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks for all your videos! They are very much appreciated!

Anyone know how to 'select text with similar formatting' on a mac - it doesn't seem seen to be a feature in the mac version.

Thank you so much, Mark! Great video. Very thorough.

I had one issue, which I eventually managed to solve. So I thought I'd share in case anyone else is trying to do the same thing and running into the same problem.

The resource I converted was Berkhof's Systematic Theology, and I really wanted four levels in the table of contents. I set up the headings (1-4) without too much trouble, and everything looked good in the navigation pane. But I didn't get a table of contents the first time I sent the file to Kindle. Then I added the table of contents in the Word document, as suggested in the discussion above, and when I re-sent it, I did get the table of contents, but it only had two levels.

I searched all over trying to find out why, and I finally ran across something that suggested the conversion couldn't handle more than one indentation. That explained it. The first level (heading 1) had no indentation, the second level (heading 2) had one indentation, but the third and fourth levels and two and three indentations. So they were either ignored or lost in the conversion.

I went back into Word, clicked on the table of contents (just anywhere inside it), went to the References Tab, and selected "Table of Contents" and then "Custom Table of Contents" and then in the window that opened selected "Modify." From there, I was able to adjust the indentation so that all four levels showed up in the Kindle table of contents.

In doing this, you obviously lose the visual nesting (each descending level isn't indented one step further to the right), but that doesn't seem to be an option. Fortunately in this resource, levels 3 and 4 had roman numerals and letters proceeding them, so it's not too difficult to distinguish them. It's not ideal, but it's a lot better than not having those levels in the table of contents at all. So I'm happy.

Thanks again, Mark. Your video was extremely helpful!

I don't understand the reasoning behind dropping the Vyrso application from Kindle.  I certainly use my Kindle as a preferred reader.  This makes it hard for me to use my Logos library when I am away from home.  My iPhone Plus screen is small for older eyes.  I am a retired lay person and cannot readily upgrade to Logos 6, or now 7;  I am still on Logos 5.  

Can someone please send me instructions on how to send the Basics of Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary App to my Kindle Fire using My Macbook Pro and  Logos 5?  (The instructions above imply it is more difficult and probably a different process for Logos 5.)  Thank you.

HI Caryn - and welcome to the forums

Caryn DeVore:

I don't understand - as far as I knew the Logos apps were still supported on Kindle Fire as per https://community.logos.com/forums/p/131783/857559.aspx#857559 

Caryn DeVore:

As above I don't think is the issue to focus on - at least initially - but the free Logos 6 engine is available at https://www.logos.com/support/install_logos_6 and the free Logos 7 engine should be available next month. Upgrading to Logos 6 is recommended as 5 is no longer supported.

I know I haven't answered this question but, hopefully, if we can work out why you aren't able to use the Logos apps on Kindle Fire it won't be necessary!

As Graham said, "welcome!" Smile

I think he gave you what you needed, but for clarification: The announcement about "send to kindle" does not refer to Kindle Fire devices. The "send to kindle" service was a way to get Logos resources on the eInk (non-fire) kindle devices, which don't run apps. 

Also, Faithlife develops mobile apps for iOS & Android. The Kindle Fire devices run a modified version of Android. Consequently, they have a greater say over which apps they sell in their app store and/or allow to run on their devices. If you continue to have issues with your fire, you should create a new thread in the ANDROID forum. That will allow you to get the best help possible.
